Small cut on the shaft of penis while shaving. Danger in unprotected sex?

hi, after shaving, i made a small cut on the base/shaft of my penis, its very small and didnt bleed much at the time. I am just curious if i am in any danger if i have unprotected sex with my partner within the next few hours? will it help at all if it is protected, as the condom will most likely not cover the cut. thanks

Hi,
If your partner is having any STD then risk of having infection spread to you is likely as base of shaft may not covered with condom and so might come in contact with her genital parts.
Ok and take care.

Hi, I sustained a small cut on the shaft of my penis a month or two ago. For a while it would heal and then open up again after intercourse or masturbation; however, I stopped having sex and masturbating for a few days and it closed up, but will not go away. I went to a dermatologist for an unrelated issue and showed it to him and he told me that it may been a small bacterial infection, but was nothing to worry about. He instructed me to put aquaphor on it, which I have been doing, and while it does get better some days, it will not go away. Any idea on what this could be and how I can treat it?

Hello, my problem is that i find extremely difficult to wear a condom. I have measured my penis lenght:18 cm and my girth: 17cm and I think it's pretty much average so, why can't I put on a condom without being so tight it cut my blood flow…Any serious advice would be welcome. Thanks.

Hello, I stayed round my boyfriends 2 nights ago and we thought it was time too have sex he's done it before but it was my first time. He never put a condom on and I'm not sure why? He put his penis in slowly but it was very painful. Eventually we had too stop because it really hurt. I'v been sore the past couple of days and I thought thats because I'v been stretched open a little bit. I'v just come out the shower and there was a tiny tiny bit of blood what is this?

i have these paper cut things around the inside of my lips of my vagina and I've never had unprotected sex,I've only had sex with one guy and I am very safe. I don't keep them but I get them every once in a while. They don't itch or anything just sensative if I'm like rubbing or something..I don't know what it could be so I thought I would ask before I freak out.lol
